there is only one answer to that question.

I'm a mod on a car forum elsewhere on the net and I too get fed up with people being too lazy to use the search function or even Google things. The standpoint of the staff here is a very good one, even though it is a "tough love" scenario. If newbies are allowed to ask the same questions over and over again it stagnates the growth of the forum. The place doesn't progress and new issues or discoveries don't get unearthed because we're all telling people what Homebrew is (again and again).
So although some people may think it's a tough stance by the staff team, personally I welcome it.
Thanks to the efforts of those who have been kind enough to put together tutorials, I've managed to softmod my Wii, install Homebrew, get Priiloader and Bootmii protection and run games from a USB drive without asking a single question.
Now that I've got all that happening I'm starting to work my way through the various threads on here so I can learn about what is actually happening as part of these installs and get a better understanding of softmodding the Wii in general. If I can do this why can't everyone?
People need to realise the difference between those who volunteer to contribute to a site like this and Nintendo Customer Service! If they don't like being told the difference, let them go somewhere else.
Keep up the good work and thanks for all the contritbutions so far.
Very good point. The mod team must have great problems dealing with people such as that when they are so understaffed. There is nothing I hate more than answering the same question repeatedly for thickheaded users.
I find it hard to beleive your a mod.
Bumping a 8 month old post is what a noob does.
Your first post should have been in the intro thread.
Didn't realise it was eight months old when I was skimmed through threads that are new to me. I guess we can't all be _~+ELITE HAXXORS+~_ like you eh?

Sorry you feel that way.
Good luck with your adventures..
To all Mods thanks for all your hard work we would be screwed with out it lol
